SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Authorities have released the name of the Shreveport infant who died after being left for hours in a hot vehicle.

The Caddo coroner's office says she is 6-month-old Addyson Blackburn.

An autopsy has been ordered.

Shreveport police say they and firefighters were called to the 6700 block of Woolworth Road about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The child, who was just shy of 7 months old, had been in the car since about 11 a.m., police have said.

The coroner's office, citing the National Weather Service office in Shreveport, says temperatures Tuesday ranged from a low of 70 degrees at 11:58 a.m. to a high of 91 degrees recorded just after 3 p.m.

It appears that the driver left the child in the car as he went to work, authorities have said.

No charge has been filed.
